We recently started binge watching The Great British Baking Show and it’s fantastic! After watching episode after episode of “biscuits”, cakes, swiss rollls and roulades, some things I’d never even heard of before but looked amazing on camera, etc. being baked and presented, we were inspired to bake something ourselves at home. The particular episode we were watching at the time featured a lot of lemon cakes, which led me to discover this recipe for lemon cake with lemon buttercream frosting; as we already had everything we needed to make this at home, we got to work. Of course we did not have edible flowers on hand, so we made candied lemon slices instead to top the cake with. I think it came out pretty well too! As they say on the show, “On your mark, get set, bake!”
